Artist Statement: I think that this world and my human experience is a phenomenal and magical happening. There are so many unexplainable truths regarding cycles, the spirit, the endless universe, and our humble human existence. In my work I record and research my memories and my imagination to become closer to the interconnectivity of this massive system of life. With paint I transform emotions into color, experiences into shapes, and imagination and spirit into material.
